I am Ajay Shah, Registered Osteopath. I offer osteopathic consultations in Balham.

My Fees

Many private insurance schemes will pay for osteopathic treatment: I am a recognised provider for BUPA, and several other schemes may be willing to provide for osteopathic treatment. You should contact your insurance company to find out if my osteopathic fees will be covered.

I work in Balham, London SW12. My practice has good transport links and is served by the Tube, Overground, trains and buses. Parking is free during my working hours.


  • I have known and benefited from Mr Shah's treatment for over for over 20 years, mostly for back trouble and recently for a shoulder problem. He is an excellent osteopath, a great communicator and an open and honest person. I have decided to have 6 monthly check -ups with him to ensure that I am fully aware and have treated any muscle tensions that I am often unaware of.

  • I am a runner, which can cause tightness in the lower back. I have visited Mr. Ajay Shah three times, in 1996, 2010 and 2012. The first two times I was having spasms in my lower back that caused extreme tightness, pain, and difficulty in walking. Both times he provided immediate relief, and solved my problem after only 2 or 3 visits. What's more, in 1996, he taught me some exercises that helped keep the problem from coming back for 14 years! In 2012, I returned with minor back tightness, which he improved after 2 visits. If you have a back problem, I can recommend him to you very highly!

  • I first saw Ajay Shah as recommended by my doctors when I lived in Clapham many years ago and I was suffering from painful headaches. Within 3 appointments Ajay had cured my problem. Also, within this time I had also managed to do something to my thumb whilst carrying something heavy - I had moved my joint out of place, so that every time I put pressure on my hand my thumb would hurt. I told Ajay and he gently moved my thumb back to the position by manipulation - it has never hurt since! Since then I moved from Clapham and live just over an hour from Ajay's practice but I had got an injury from a Yoga class - I knew of only one man I trusted to make my neck better and that was Ajay. Why would I travel over an hour to see Ajay Shah Osteopath - simple answer = I trust him and he has always fixed any neck or related issues I've had, he gives me advice on how to look after my neck and back and exercises to help, he is exceptional value for money and above all he is a really great guy!

  • Over the past few years I have been to see Mr Ajay Shah and have always been treated in a very respectful and courteous manner. I do suffer from lower back problems, particularly due to a stressful job, and these issues have always been resolved together with helpful suggestions of exercises to do. I can remember one incident when I had lifted a television wrongly and my back seized up. I could barely walk into Mr Shah's practice but half an hour later I was walking out after treatment. Many thanks!

  • When I twisted my back and was in considerable pain Mr Shah was able to see me promptly and to get me walking again. During the next consultation he helped get rid of the pain and he gave me some stretching exercises for staying fit in the long term. I still do these exercises when I swim each morning and I have been free of back pain for three years now. Highly recommended.

  • I saw Ajay with severe neck pain and felt much better after two treatments. Very good.

  • I have had essential help from Ajay Shah for many years from several different accident and sport injuries, and for me there is no need to go anywhere else. Fast recovery and permanent re-alignment have been the most important elements to my recovery each time. Ajay Shah has done this for me each time. I am so grateful for the treatment I have received, allowing me to get on with my working life after a full recovery each time.
